Spring is here! The arrival of warm weather means days by the pool, family barbecues and a perfect time to search for a home. Whether you’re looking to move across town or within your neighborhood now is the perfect time to take action! We’ve researched 5 essential must have summer features to have in your next Houston luxury home.
Here are some tips to consider when looking for your next home.
1. House Dehumidifier
Houston homes aren’t always built to battle the fierce humidity that comes with hot summer days. When shopping for a new home, consider investing in a whole house dehumidifier or specialty home cooling devices that will help you battle the scorching heat.
2. Cool off on the Patio
Outdoor fans will help circulate the air and make you feel cooler while enjoying some time outside. If you like to relax on your porch or patio, outdoor fans are well worth the investment.
3. Keep it Luxurious
Houston luxury homes should offer the highest amenities. When searching for a home, consider buying a property with a pool. With Houston summer temperatures reaching the triple digits, you’ll want to take a dip in the convenience and privacy of your own home.
4. Stay in the Shade
Block out the sun and keep your home cool with energy-efficient window treatments. From indoor blinds to outdoor awnings, you’ll need all the help you can get to beat the Houston heat! Look for these custom features on your next home search.
5. Outdoor Misting Systems
Did you know that outdoor misting systems can help cool the outside air by as much as 20 degrees! To help with heat and humidity, be on the lookout for homes that have reliable outdoor misting systems pre-installed. You can also hire a professional to do the installation for you or you can DIY if you’re up for the challenge.
